You might have noticed that London plays host to quite a few regions that are named after royalty and nobility. King’s Cross just so happens to be one of these locations and it takes its name from the fact that ancient Kings in the Anglo-Saxon period would use the nearby bridges to ‘cross’ from one area to the next. Nowadays, the famous King’s Cross railway station is what makes the region famous, but there’s a lot more that could be said about this historic area.
Like what exactly, please tell us more!
Like the fact that the entire region used to be a red light district back in the day. A lot has changed since then, in fact in the middle of the 1990s the local borough council decided that it was time for a change of face. And this decision led to the area that you now see and enjoy. The Battle Bridge is still present and stands testament to the ancient kings – but now it’s protected by the government, so you’ll have to be careful when travelling across it.
Speaking of travelling, you’ll be happy to hear that this region enjoys one of the most active transportation services in the country. Not only can you easily get to and from London via the train lines, you’ll be able to travel throughout this area itself via bus, tube and cab. And to top it all off, there’s even huge amount of retail outlets, department stores, eateries and much more in between!
That’s all great, so what about the salons?
